Red Hat Satellite engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on Satellite to Red Hat Jira ( If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "Satellite project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs will be migrated starting at the end of May. If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "Satellite project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "", where "X" is a digit).

Description Avijit Roy 2020-12-04 08:59:54 UTC
Description of problem:

For Example: tfm-rubygem-hammer_cli_foreman_tasks

If we check the dependency using rpm we see the below output. 

rpm -q --requires tfm-rubygem-hammer_cli_foreman_tasks
config(tfm-rubygem-hammer_cli_foreman_tasks) = 0.0.14-1.el7sat
rpmlib(CompressedFileNames) <= 3.0.4-1
rpmlib(FileDigests) <= 4.6.0-1
rpmlib(PayloadFilesHavePrefix) <= 4.0-1
tfm-rubygem(hammer_cli_foreman) > 0.1.1
tfm-rubygem(hammer_cli_foreman) < 3.0.0 
tfm-rubygem(powerbar) >= 1.0.11
tfm-rubygem(powerbar) < 3.0
rpmlib(PayloadIsXz) <= 5.2-1

For the same package, the UI shows a different result. 

Content >> Packages >> Serach for 'tfm-rubygem-hammer_cli_foreman_tasks' >> Dependencies

tfm-rubygem(hammer_cli_foreman) > 0.1.1
tfm-rubygem(hammer_cli_foreman) > 3.0.0   -----> This is showing diffrent in rpm output. 
tfm-rubygem(powerbar) > 3.0  -----> This is showing diffrent in rpm output.
tfm-rubygem(powerbar) >= 1.0.11

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Satellite 6.7+

Actual results:

rpm -q --requires and dependency on satellite UI is showing different information. 

Expected results:
rpm -q --requires and dependency on satellite UI should produce similar information.

Hi Brad, could someone from Katello share how the look up for dependencies is performed int he UI and how Pulp is involved.
I'm struggling a bit to figure out which API call can be used for that. Thanks!

Comment 4 Justin Sherrill 2021-04-20 12:59:20 UTC
Created redmine issue from this bug

Comment 7 Tanya Tereshchenko 2021-04-20 14:38:17 UTC
Nice! Moving to Repositories in a hope that it's the right component :)

Thanks for the fix, Justin!

Moving this bug to POST for triage into Satellite since the upstream issue has been resolved.

Comment 11 Tasos Papaioannou 2021-06-01 17:25:16 UTC
The issue still exists with the fix present.

If I make the corresponding changes in app/services/katello/pulp3/rpm.rb and restart services, then the issue is resolved:

Associating a redmine that addresses that failedqa and moving to POST as PR is merged upstream.

Comment 16 addubey 2021-10-26 08:49:25 UTC

Tested on: Satellite-6.10.0 Snap 24.0

Steps followed: 

1. Checking dependency with (rpm -q --requires tfm-rubygem-hammer_cli_foreman_tasks) on the stdout

2. Navigate to Content >> Packages >> Search for 'tfm-rubygem-hammer_cli_foreman_tasks' >> Dependencies

Observation: rpm -q --requires on stdout and dependency on satellite UI possess similar information.
